“For a moment there, I thought he was the one. I thought he was going to be my knight in shining armor but I was wrong. My false beliefs led me to false hopes and momentarily happiness. We weren’t official, yes. But that title was nothing for me, I didn’t care what label we had because he made me feel assured to the point that he would call me in the middle of the night, drunk and telling me that he loves me while I, was stupid to believe him.

Tagaytay is always our go-to date place and I’m glad that there a lot of new places to visit there. Cafe Voila is an alternative to the usual meet-up places like Bag of Beans, Antonio’s or Buon Giorno.
Canyon Cove is located in Nasugbu, 3 hours away from Manila if traveling via a private car and usually 3 to 4 hours if you are traveling by public transportation. Nasugbu is home to a lot of both hostels, expensive hotels as well as awesome beach front accommodations. Check map here:
Tagaytay is my “comfort zone”. I feel so relaxed whenever I am in Tagaytay. Well, who wouldn’t agree that it is one of the most laid back places in the Philippines with its great view, cool weather plus it’s just a few hours away from Manila.
My officemate Arjay, a travel blogger, he invited me & another officemate to join his Zambales trip. He said that we are going to stay in a tent for a night since there are no hotels in Magalawa island. I got so excited since I haven’t slept in a tent since high school but honestly, I expected worst especially with the toilets and all. This is the first trip that I won’t be staying in a hotel.
“At times it may seem as though you and your past are one. Sometimes we fail to differentiate between what has happened to us and who we are today. If you have a hard time getting beyond that damaging mind-set let me encourage you right now. You are not your past Although you are changed and shaped by past experiences who you were yesterday does not control the person you have the potential to become tomorrow.”
― Sue Augustine, When Your Past Is Hurting Your Present
Past is past, you cannot change it! All you can do is look forward to the future. That’s what they always say BUT how can you look forward when every time you decide for your future, you will always be haunted by memories especially when you are alone and vulnerable? Well, i think that’s the consequences of the spicy, sweet mistakes you’ve done before.
If given a chance to fix half of it, I will always remind myself these things:
1. Consult GOD for everything
2. Listen to your parents
2. Love yourself first
3. Learn how to say NO and;
4. Don’t talk to strangers
By sticking to these rules, I guess, my future is saved!
They say, “Early bird catches the worm”, the problem is, i am not an early bird but I do love breakfast food..hash brown, longganisa, fried rice and hot chocolate.. All my friends know that you must be really special if I entertain you in the morning. I will wake up early if really needed. My friend Krizia was so eager to try this breakfast place so we’ve planned to visit it last weekend. Well, why would i disagree, i can have my breakfast at 6pm. EARLY BIRD Breakfast Club is just around Fort Strip, an all-day breakfast restaurant with the simple vision of uplifting us all day with their tasty food.
They have nice walls, couches and table for two’s. Their sunny-side-up egg on a half shell tells me that they truly are serving best breakfast meals. They have second floor which is ideal for meetings or functions.
Just one sip and I’m falling for this Nutella Hot Chocolate. Yes Nutella! I can have 4 to 6 cups of this hottie all day 😀
Nutella Hot Chocolate (P 145)
I ordered one of their bestseller, four pieces of heirloom-recipe longganisa, garlic rice and your choice of egg, I had sunny side up of course 😀 Their longganisa is sweet, stuffed with pure meat and can really make my belly full.
Viva Longganisa (P 345)
Krizia ordered Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich, cheddar, mozzarella and gruyere between slices of toasted bread served with sweet and spicy onion relish but i hope the bread has additional aroma and taste, add some spices maybe.
The Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich (P 345)
Our kind server suggested Full English Breakfast, he said that it is one of their best seller but it’s a bit pricey (400-ish) if you’re eating it alone. Eggs, toasted bread, bacon and sausage, meal is good for sharing though.
Choco Banana Berry French Toast (P 295)
What a good way to end the day with a sweet breakfast, we had choco banana berry french toast. Another nutella masterpiece, caramelized french toast with fresh bananas & blueberry jam.
P500 to P700 per head will do, enough to taste your favorite breakfast meals with a heavenly twist and taste, a bit pricey (i know) but it’s worth it.

I created this blog to share my cravings and to serve as my food diary. Good taste and affordability is the golden rule but when I am looking for a restaurant to visit, a nice ambiance adds up to the criteria. Creating ambiance is not just creating a look, it goes far beyond that. Depending on the line of food/service you’re offering, a good ambiance will attract customers for sure.
MU Noodle Bar’s Interiors: Wooden chairs and couches are in darker tones of charcoal and deep browns. You can choose between high chairs or the comfy couches. Warm lights above the tables gives the place a “not so boring” and kinda date place, plus lighting keeps the photos attractive in cameras.
Hot Tea (P 40)
Tea time! Look at these cutesy Moo’s.
Beef fried rice + lamb curry = perfect combination. The rice and curry is good for 2 persons. I think for heavy eaters, one serving will not be enough because their servings look a bit tricky but for sure, they can make your tummy full. The lamb meat is soft, cut into chunks and the curry is infused with spices which makes it richer and tastier. Drizzle your rice with curry sauce, oooh heaven!

Another breakthrough is the Oyster cake. Oyster cake is made of oysters, bean sprouts and green onions, mixed with tapioca starch and then fried with eggs.

For dessert, you can order Cua Pao custard, 4 pieces of golden brown cua pao buns filled with sweet and creamy condensed milk. It was an interesting dessert to try. It is golden brown in color filled with salted egg custard and malted chocolate stuffed inside a fried bun.

It’s the start of the week and thought that it might be the perfect time to do some photoshoot. My friend/photographer/stylist and blogging bud Apple walked few miles (just kidding) just to show off our clothes LOL.
I bet you love my cat eye sunglasses from The WearhousePh, I love this sunglasses, it compliments my rounded face.
I love Black Sheep tops, very light and comfy. This black lace skirt from Pink Manila is so sexy. Do you agree? *wink
Up Dharma Down is the password to open my time capsule. Listen to their songs.. and boom I am transported to the past, memories are slowly flashing back. UDD songs are my ultimate “emo” soundtracks, with Tadhana or Oo, I am instantly ready for my own music video.
Whether you have a bad experience or been in a romantic love affair, you feel that their songs are personally written for you. It’s like they have been there before and have felt your pain. You will also remember how wonderful any phase of love feels and get a little romantic with every line in the songs. That’s how awesome UDD songs are!!!
For my foreign readers, Up Dharma Down is an award-winning rock band here in the Philippines and one of few great bands that has been featured in Time magazine. Talent and wit combined, four musicians (Armi Millare as the vocalist & on keyboards, Carlos Tanada on lead guitar, Ean Mayor on drums and Paul Yap on bass) make unforgettable music history together.
So before I get so emotional, let me share my top 3 UDD songs and my favourite lines:
